of us will face difficult problems. the question is, will america be the america that it's always been? we do not get our authority by might. we get it by the way we treat each other. and so these folks are going through some difficult times, these are the same people that this loan program is about, these are the same people that showed up time after time, sitting in the front row of something i call my foreclosure prevention program, with tears running down their faces. many of them have never missed a mortgage payment, have worked hard every day and have done everything that was required of them. these are our american neighbors, they are the american neighbors that sit in ohio, they're the ones who are in california and new york. those are our neighbors and they are in a time of need and we're talking about a $1 billion program to try to help people as they're struggling, trying to get up after an economy, by the way, where regulation failed them. they find themselves in these difficulties, in many instances, buzz people were not regulating -- because people were not regulating pro

. at this point, america was in the throes of a cold war and our great nation was viewed with cynicism. the peace corps showed the world the enduring values of peace, commitment to national service and an optimism that had been lost in the cold war and world war ii. under the masterful direction of sargent shriver, it grew to 1,500 volunteers. i was one of those early recruits. i found myself in peace corps training and found myself in medellin, colombia. i saw the grinding cycles of poverty that left so many men, women and children without hope. i committed then to work to end the culture of poverty. it is in no small part due to that experience in the peace corps that i am standing here in the congress. yes, i will yield. mr. dreier: i'd like to con gradge late my friend for his service in the peace corps. he not only served then but he continues to share that with us today and as we deal with countries around the world, the peace corps has been very important and i'm happy to recognize their 50th anniversary. mr. farr: thank you, mr. dreier. over the past 50 years, the peace corps has shown th

. this is just a way of saying obama is really a terrorist. not from america, of course. is this what it takes to be a leader in the republican party? appeal to the haters who cannot accept the legitimacy of this president? on a parallel note, one of our pollsters tells us yesterday, it may be hard to understand why someone would jump off a cliff unless you understand they're being chased by a tiger. and that tiger is the tea party. in other words the gop is jumping off the political cliff right now and the tea party is that tiger chasing behind it. the latest example, a tea party leader calling for john boehner's defeat because he won't support the tea party's also after newt resigned after leading his party to a disaster after being reprimanded himself after being nominated on the family values republican party ticket? we'll find out. newt gingrich all but made it official today. on the subject of sex scandals, more evidence is surfacing that it could lead to an indictment for john edwards, misusing campaign funds or, in fact, using funds as -- that should have been a campaign contribution.

or what combination of sources will actually turn out to be best for america. and that should be cause for those of us here in congress to be extraordinarily careful in trying to predetermine what sources should either win or lose. we're always talking around here about we need to steer clear of picking winners and losers, and yet that seems that's what we do all the time. a diversity of energy sources provides the best proving ground and insurance against overreliance on any one source and a healthy economy provides the best demand for the cleanest sources available. winston churchill once said, "on no one quality, on no one process, on no one country, on no one route and on no one field must we be depend hent. safety and certainty in oil lie in variety and variety alone. now, winston churchill was talking about oil but his words are just as applicable to our need for diversity in all of our types of energy. now, finally, the need to make our energy domestic to the greatest degree possible is something that we've all known. we all know that we need to do this, but we have failed to do

the white people in america all shook up. they cannot stand it because he was a black man. george bush -- host: you think this is about race? caller: part of it is, peter. i can understand why white people cannot see the racist element of it. if he was a black bush, you could see it. host: omaha, nebraska, on the republican line. just then, how you think the president has handled the libyan conflict so far -- justin? caller: i do not approve of the present -- he has shown that he is loyal to one group of people, the bankers. we have no business in libya. if this was such an issue, why did we allow this for 40 years or some of their other nations closer. at least it is a coalition. i am not interested in anything the united nations says -- host: what did you think of the iraq war during the bush administration? caller: i am a veteran of the iraq war. i was there in 2004 when it was still pretty fuzzy -- when there was no government and nothing going on. i was a bit younger than. that was almost 10 years ago. and it took me about two weeks of being there to figure out that this was a sca
about it. think about the history of innovation. what sets america apart is so many of our great inventions start out in small garages and labs with driven, inspired people who have great ideas, developed them and then they take off. i mention companies that have started this way yesterday. hewlett packard, apple, google, and there are hundreds and perhaps thousands of others. they started from humble beginnings, and they grew spectacularly, creating jobs for millions of americans and lifting up our economy and standard of living. i know an inventor who invented sky vodka, and the vodka he drank disturbed his stomach, so he figured out biologically and chemically what it was, and he invented a vodka called sky vodka. small inventor. that company was subsequently sold, i think for a great deal of money, but it started with one man who had a stomachache from drinking vodka. now, this may be just one type of example, but apple is certainly another type of example. a garage many years ago in california, and out of that emerged this giant company. so these companies start from humble
connell-inhofe amendment. america america my -- mr. merkley: my colleague from texas was addressing this amendment and noting her support for it. i would like to address several reasons that y this amendment is bad policy for america. first and foremost, this amendment increases our addiction to foreign oil. it increases oil consumption by 455 million barrels. right now we import about 9.7 million barrels of oil per day. so this amendment is equivalent to six weeks' worth of oil imports. recognize that gas prices are about $3.50 a gallon. the mcconnell-inhofe amendment amounts to a $68 billion price tag for working families to buy gas, to buy gas from oil imported from overseas. and this isn't a tax that in any way supports our economy. in fact, this is a tax that goes out of our economy to purchase energy from overseas. so, from the middle east, from nigeria, from venezuala. that is very profitable to the companies that supply that oil. it's very profitable to the governments far outside of the united states of america. but it certainly hurts the citizens of our nation. it takes our energy dollar
it out of america. but it's not the only item i mentioned. i mentioned $1.2 billion the gentleman wanted to send to the iraqi forces. the $250,000 limit the republicans rejected on individual entities. so, no, there are billions in agriculture and the military. i didn't just mention one item. the gentleman does understand they're vulnerable so they blame obama. they are both wrong sending money to brazil. i hope in his final time the gentleman from alabama will address it. in the first place, on two of these programs, the hamp program, which we will deal with next week on the floor, and the f.h.a. refi, the money doesn't come from the treasury. they keep saying it but they are wrong. and ignoring a fact doesn't make it go away. those are funds that come from tarp. in the financial reform bill we reinforced an earlier provision, and i will subject it to the record. i'll put it in the record. it says the fdic is authorized to conduct risk-based assessments on financial companies to pay for this, the money that's left in the tarp. we have a mandate to the fdic so that when the tarp is finis
says the that almost half the households in america do not have any access to public transit. they do not have a choice. they pay the high price of gas or do not travel to much of these places. for most americans, public transportation ought to be an option. host: to comment or ask a question, please call the numbers at the bottom of your screen. you can also e-mail us for says tweet. the president address the topic of oil and gas prices in a conference yesterday. here is what he had to say. >> we need to continue to boost domestic production of oil and gas. last year, we reached its highest level since 2003. let me repeat that. our oil production reached its highest level in seven years. oil production from federal waters in the gulf of mexico reached an all-time high. for the first time in more than a decade, imports accounted for less than half of what we consume. any notion that my administration has shut down oil production may make for a good political sound bite, but it does not match up to reality. guest: we want to move as much of our energy production to domestic sources as

before controversial hearings this week on islamic extremism in america. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." libya centering the fourth week of what's now a full-fledged civil war. moammar gadhafi's forces are claiming new gains in their pounding of rebel-held cities. gadhafi maintaining a tight grip on the capital of tripoli, and the opposition appears to be holding out to benghazi in the east, but there are conflicting reports about who is in control of several other key cities, where fierce, fierce battles have been raging now for days. diplomatic sources at the united nations say the united states is working with france and britain on draft resolution on libya, a resolution that includes language on a no-fly zone. president obama warning once again today that the bloodshed in libya is unacceptable. >> i want to send a very clear message to those who are around colonel gadhafi. it is their choice to make how they operate moving forward, and they will be held accountable for whatever violence continues to take place there. in the meantime, we've got nato as we speak consul
in america. these are bad priorities, they're bad policies and they're bad values. the right way is a balanced approach. this must include spending cuts. we've made cuts in my own appropriations bill buvment it also includes necessary revenue increases. while making room for vit kal investment -- kri critical investments for job creation in the future. we know this balanced budget approach can work, because i said that's what we it in the early 1990's under press clinton. we did both. we cut spending and we raised revenues. as i said, every republican voted against it. but that single act of congress and that bill signed by the president led to the largest budget surpluses and the longest economic expansion in u.s. history created 22 million new jobs. now, h.r. 1, that has come over from the house, their approach on how to bring the budget under control will kill jobs. mark zandi, top economic adviser to senator mccain's campaign estimated that h.r. 1 will kill some 700,000 jobs. federal reserve chairman bernanke estimates it will kill 200 now jobs. nobody knows for sure. but eve
me make this plain. we cannot cut education. we cannot cut the things that will make america more competitive. [cheers and applause] think about what happens to your own family and when someone loses a job or has a no less, you need to cut back. -- has an illness, you cut back. you watch television instead going to the movies. you start packing your own lunch. there are things that you might do. the last thing you are going to do is dig into your child's college savings. that is too important. you are not going to give that up. what is true for your family is true for the american family. [applause] it is the same principles. a budget that sacrifice is our commitment to education would be a budget that sacrifices our country's future. that would be a budget that sacrifices our children's future. i will not allow that to happen. [applause] yes, i am determined to cut our deficit, but i refuse to do it by telling students here who are so full of promise that we're not willing to invest in your future. i do not much to tell these young people than their education is not a priority. -
a failure. meanwhile, the legal black hole has substantially set back america's ability to lead the world against the threat of terrorism and undermined our most basic values. so, make no mistake, we are less safe because the way george bush has handled this issue. >> this latest development sets the stage for the prosecution of several 9/11 suspects including alleged master mere khalid shaikh mohammed, but the questions remain, can the u.s. realistically try terror suspects and close down the prison at the same time. richard wolffe is at the white house with the latest on this. let's start with why the reversal on the president's position here. >> reporter: well, this reversal has been in the work x for a couple of years now and it starts up with the politics of it. they turned against this president early in his term when democrats joined with republicans to cut off funding to transfer prisoners to a high security prison likely to be illinois, but once the politics changed and we saw it with the recent defense spending bill there was no physical way or a practical way they could really
new warnings on the nuclear crisis in japan. welcome to "america live" on a monday. i'm megyn kelly. workers are finding new pools of radioactive water leaking from japan's crippled nuke plant at this hour. material from one of the six reactors is spreading further into the ocean. the new concerns started less than 24 hours ago when japanese officials reported a spike in radiation levels 100,000 times above normal inside reactor two. a cabinet official confirming that a partial meltdown at that plant is to blame for the spike. the plant's operator is reporting extremely high radiation levels in water tunnels outside the reactor. so high that top u.s. environmental officials report that a single dose is enough to cause hemorrhaging. more from osaka, japan. >> reporter: yes, megyn. it is looking serious now in terms of the quantity of radiation emanating from the nuclear plant. it appears that we have significant problems at reactor 2 and reactor 3. hearing there are pools of water in a trench that drains off from the reactor towards the sea. it's about 90 feet from the sea, we believ
that talks about stealing america's liberty. and one of the fundamental problems that i perceive, and i'm not alone in this, but in this entire scheme if you will, that's represented by the affordable care act as it's been called is that there was a failure to understand the very nature of american medical care. when it's at its best and we recognize, every colleague of mine, all of my republican and medical colleagues have also appreciated certainly that we want to see all americans have access to good, affordable care and to have affordable, portable health insurance. that's not in dispute. we honor those goals. but the means by which the a.c.a. endeavors to achieve those goals go against the grain of the american culture. our culture is one that has always allowed us to choose, that has allowed us to pursue in terms of our medical care the best that the world has to offer in terms of innovation and quality, motivation, inseptemberive to invent and to do better. and the american medical consumer, our patients, expect no less than the best. nor should they receive anything less than th
